Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
330ml bottle at home. Pours a black choc colour with a thin tan head. Aroma is not overpowering, with molasses, caramel, coffee, chocolate. Medium chocolatey sweetness, light roasted malt bitterness, and just a little boozy kick at the end. Very smooth, in both flavour and carbonation, with a full-bodied feel to it. Very good.

StoutHead (945) - DENMARK - JAN 13, 2013
330ml bottle. Almost completely black but with a deep red tint. Tan head and lots of lacing. Medium carbonation. Smells roasty. Taste like roasted malt, coffee & liquorice. Itís very dry but tastes good and has a long lasting taste. The best porter Iíve had from Porterhouse.

Filipbeer (149) - - JAN 6, 2013
Cerveza stout de Navidad. Aromas a café/chocolate. Matices de aromas afrutados (frutas negras). En boca presenta cuerpo medio. Se vuelven a notar aromas a cafe/tostados y crema. Entrada dulce que deja paso al amargor. Equilibrada con postgusto seco y medio-largo. Filip

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 17, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2014 Pour is brown black with a fizzy tan head that quickly disappears. Roasted malt, toffee, irish whiskey, oak and coffee in the aroma. Mouthfeel is slick, with a hint of carbonation in the body. Quite a heavy body. More warming Irish whiskey in the flavour, liquorice, with some background burnt malt which works very well. Finish is long and lush, with lots of lovely warming alcohol. Stunning.

Dogbrick (11654) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle at Porterhouse Central. The beer pours a flat black color with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and a bit of dark fruit. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt, espresso and a touch of anise. The finish is roasty with a coffee and berry aftertaste. Above average overall.

mcberko (14690) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2012
330mL bottle, pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma of bittersweet dark chocolate, light roast, and some feint butterscotch. Flavour of toffee / butterscotch, some dry roasted malt and bitter cocoa powder. Certainly not an impie, at least by North American standards, with a fairly restrained and a bit watery body. Quite a bitter finish, likely from the roast, which is quite harsh toward the end. All in all, a pretty boring stout.
